Homeschool Legacy Review

For a while now, I have been wanting to do a unit study with my bugs on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Well, it so happened that Homeschool Legacy was offering 10 different titles for us TOS members to review and the one we were blessed to review is entitled Lewis and Clark: From Sea to Shining Sea. We were so excited! This fit so well into our homeschool. It is recommended the unit study be done once a week for 7 weeks and one entire day be devoted to just that. It couldn't have worked out any better. We do unit studies as part of our homeschool anyway, so us taking an entire day to focus on Lewis and Clark was right up our alley.

HOMESCHOOL LEGACY offers once -a-week unit studies written by Sharon Gibson. They are biblically centered, pre-planned, hands-on and inexpensive. What more could you ask for! Each week gives you a list of books and video choices that can be checked out at your local library. They also have a suggested schedule to go by to make things easier.

These studies encourage the use of a History Timeline. If you have already begun compiling a timeline, great, just add to it. If you  are like us, have NOT, don't worry. In our study, it gives you directions for a simple, history timeline notebook. We had so much fun making our timelines. We are still adding to them. I plan on getting many more of these once-a-week unit studies from Homeschool Legacy so we can continue adding to our timelines.

There are so many great features to these studies:

          ---Lots of suggestions on reading material and many are at the library.
          ---Hands on activities
          ---Arts & Crafts
          ---Geography, History, Vocabulary, Science and more.
          ---Field Trip Ideas
          ---And additional book suggestions for your Non-Readers or Early ones.

Unit Study - $19.99
Grades 2-12
Homeschool Legacy has 10 other UNIT STUDIES!!!
Revolutionary Ideas: The Story of the American Revolution and We the People: Getting to Know Your Constitution looks like something we will be studying in the near future.
